A young man who was viciously attacked by a police dog will be pursuing a claim for damages against the city in civil court. The police dog attacked the 19-year-old man after authorities arrived at the scene of a fatal stabbing altercation. Police claim that they called the dog on the victim when he tried to flee the scene, and that is when the animal attack occurred.
The attacked teenager was never arrested or charged in connection with police investigations or the stabbing event. Indeed, another man, aged 18, was ultimately charged with the murder, which allegedly occurred due to a fight about a girl. The charged man was being held in jail without bond as of Saturday, July 26.
